Woman Charged With Assisted Suicide In 93 y/o Father's Death

SIAP, but WTF is the matter with US prosecutors?

quote:

A Schuylkill County magistrate has ordered Barbara Mancini, 57, of Pottsville to stand trial for allegedly handing her terminally ill father his prescription morphine medication, which prosecutors claim caused or assisted his suicide.

At the August 1 preliminary hearing, Magistrate James K. Reiley said that prosecutors had presented enough evidence for the assisted suicide charges against Mancini, a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. A county judge issued a gag order in the case before the preliminary hearing began.
..........
According to Mancini's lawyer, who spoke to reporters via teleconference the day before the hearing, her father, Joe Yourshaw, was in "unremitting" pain, suffering from numerous medical conditions including diabetes and kidney failure. His daughter, who is also a nurse, was at his home hospice bedside when he allegedly asked her to pass him his prescribed morphine.

"He chose to drink his morphine because that was the only way for him to find pain relief. That was his choice; that was his constitutional right to do that," attorney Frederick Finelli said. Mancini's "stated intention, only intention" was to help her father get relief from his pain, he said.

Let the poor man pass away in peace for God's sake and don't blame his loving daughter.

Wow. Doesn't even sound like they can prove his death was intentional.

I guess the government wants to ban palliative treatment.

Wow, this is a disturbing coincidence. My father-in-law is in hospice care right now.

I can't believe the fricking prosecutors. What the hell is wrong with those people?

Interesting topic that's come up in my life. What do you do when a loved one tells you they want you to kill them to stop the pain? And I'm only talking about this type of pain where there is no reasonable possibility of recovery?

There's a huge difference between giving high dose morphine for intractable pain and smothering with a pillow.

Unfortunately, even that comes at considerable cost to the defendant.

Tinfoil hats on!

Sometimes injustice is the way to move agenda. If we are to save SS and healthcare, we must get the baby boomers in the ground and their savings back into the economy. Stories like this are the sandy hook of that movement.

Hats off!

Either there is much much much more to this story than we know due to the gag order, or the DA and prosecutors need to get the shite kicked out of them.

The problem is she screwed up big time when she told them he wanted to commit suicide. If she'd keep her mouth shut we never would have heard of this case.

Too bad Magdalene didn't have dope to administer to Christ when he was suffering on the cross.

Didn't want to start a new thread. Another assisted suicide of a terminal cancer patient. If I was on the jury, I'd find him not guilty.

“She was hurting real bad. We could hear her at night like she was gasping for air,” said Stanley Campbell, the Chumbley's next-door neighbor.
